Project Steps


I love a good room makeover and one of my favorites has been my daughter's nursery.  Last Spring I participated in the One Room Challenge and redid our 3rd bedroom upstairs and created a beautiful floral nursery for my daughter, Gabi.  We don't have a ton of shelves in Gabi's room so it has been hard to find places for some of our everyday uses such as her diffuser, diaper rash cream and hairbrush.  I started looking online to find a small little end table to put in her room but I didn't want to spend very much money.  I could never quite find what I was looking for.  Luckily, one day I was driving past our neighbors house and they were having a garage sale.  I came across this little table that was perfect for my daughter's room.

Step 1

First you want to start with giving the table a good sanding.  I got my electric sander out for this project because there was raised paint with the grapes and leaves detail.  You could do it with a sanding block but it would just take quite a bit longer! :)

Step 2

Next open up your Small Spray Shelter and set it up in an area where you have some ventilation to paint.  I have used this in our basement before (during the winter months), but it's best to do it outside.  I set it up right outside of our garage.

Step 3

The Small Spray Shelter works great for smaller projects so you can avoid over spray.  It pops up so easily and then all you have to do is follow the directions to fold it back into its case.  I wanted the little table to match the rest of my daughter's room so I used two different spray paints for this project.  I started by putting one coat of White Satin paint onto the table. 

Step 4

I ended up needing to put two coats of white paint onto the table to cover up the decorative design. What's great is you can leave the tent up while the paint dries to also protect it from debris outside.

Step 5

After both coats of the white paint were dry, then I added some pretty Metallic Pearl Mist Paint over the top.  I absolutely love the sheen on this paint and how it gives it that extra girly touch!  I also used these same paints for the little rocking chair in my daughter's room.

Step 6

Let it dry and then decorate it as you please.  I love the extra storage it provides and I love how it's so much closer to the changing table.  It helps a lot with the changing diaper process!  Thanks for reading along and I'm excited for next month's post on how I redid our hollow core doors!  Don't forget to head on over to my blog, Refashionably Late for more projects! Have a great day!
